Industrial Cost Indicator

The Industrial Cost Indicator (ICI) was developed by CNI to capture the evolution of costs and their impact on the competitiveness of Brazilian industry. It is calculated quarterly and makes it possible to keep track of the short term evolution of costs, which is key for building and evaluating policies and actions in favor of competitiveness. The indicator began to be published in January 2013, but its historical series goes back to 2006.


Industrial costs experience sharpest decline since the second quarter of 2016

Industrial cost indicator starts the year in decline, but this does not translate into competitiveness gains.
